Conditional Variance Models

GARCH, exponential GARCH (EGARCH), and GJR models

Conditional variance models attempt to address volatility clustering in univariate time series models to improve parameter estimates and forecast accuracy. To model volatility, Econometrics Toolbox™ supports the standard generalized autoregressive conditional heteroscedastic (ARCH/GARCH) model, the exponential GARCH (EGARCH) model, and the Glosten, Jagannathan, and Runkle (GJR) model.
